    Black Nerd Problems - Morgan Hampton Jan 23, 2020

    Far Sector #3 goes a long way in showing us that Jo Mullein is experienced with the types of inequality prevalent on The City Enduring because of her own experience with it on Earth as a black woman. Having that type of history inform the will and decision making of a Green Lantern is the type of stuff that I crave. Give me more! Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Jan 22, 2020

    With Far Sector #3 ending on a moment, that promises the next issue will be a must-read for fans I cannot wait for that issue to drop. I had thoroughly enjoyed this budding series through the first two issues. Now, however, issue four will definitely be one of my most anticipated drops of next month. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Jan 22, 2020

    Jo may be a rookie, but that does not suggest that she is no stranger to the kind of job she has been requested to deal with. Far Sector #3 sweeps you off your feet because this creative team pulled no punches creating a real argument for having the freedom to express emotions, versus feeling nothing for your own safety. Murder mystery are great, but you have to love the way this story has suddenly evolved into something much more engaging. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jan 29, 2020

    Writer N.K. Jemisin explores the idea of what role a Green Lantern should play when a harsh government turns on its more rebellious element. Is a Green Lantern a protector of the peace? Or a guardian of the innocent? And what happens when those two ideals come into conflict? Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jan 25, 2020

    The different aliens and alien factions are still a little tough to keep track of, especially since the writer keeps throwing random pre-existing relationships at us, but this is still a very enjoyable police procedural Green Lantern comic! Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Jay Hill Jan 22, 2020

    This talented duo is starting to gel together and craft a comic experience of cosmic proportions. The main "ideas" of the story seem to be getting clearer. Jo is still on her way to becoming a Lantern that can bring balance to the galaxy, but the situation she's found herself in may drive her closer to learning what she's made of. This was an entertaining issue that balanced its themes with its narrative and the excellent art is similarly finding its footing. It's a step in the right direction and an enjoyable read.

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Jan 22, 2020

    Far Sector #3 is another effective addition to Jo Mullein's story. There's just a hint that it's moving a tad too slowly with a bit of confusion over the alien places and names. However, there are deeper themes that Jemisin is bringing. They not only expand the scope of the tale, but provides a real world element to the unfamiliar outer space world that is this books milieu.
